What the hell? CU isn't designed to be affordable. It's designed to offer the finest level of higher education possible. We have tons of affordable higher education options. Junior colleges, community colleges, etc. CU isn't meant to be affordable. It was built to be excellent, not affordable. Just once, I'd like to see a candidate for Regent say that he/she wants to improve CU across the board. To strive for excellence in all areas. Academic standing, athletics, research, all of it. Nobody is saying that. They are all concentrating on the wrong stuff, IMO. We have the wrong people running for Regent. This sucks.
